Quanta plus your opinions.
Linux html editor.

 3:47 pm on Aug 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

I have recently started using Quanta plus on my linux box. My first impressions are it's a pretty neet html editor.
Does anyone else use this tool and if so what do you think.

Hello Mack
Yes I do!
I use it with RedHat
on two different boxes one is 8.0 the other 9.0
I hope you do not use the one from 7.5
That one was a real "headache"
I use it to dev by using PHP
My only regret is that line # has to be called daily for it does not stick in mem of the Quanta

Otherwise I use Ultra Edit

But Quanta is fine, I mean really fine

good topic I wish to hear more about

is there any hiden function that you might share with us?

I've recently made the switch to linux, and I have tried dozens of text editors - I have yet to make my final choice. My favorite was bluefish, but it appears to have an overwhelming urge to crash at frequent intervals, and I don't have enough linux knowledge to find out why. You might have better luck on your system though...

I believe Quanta is part of KDE, and I'm using Gnome at the moment, so it was very slow to start on my system. However, I found the interface pleasing and the features useful. Of course, if you only want syntax highlighting, you can get away with Kedit, which is faster. I've also tried Nedit (good but oh so ugly!), Gedit (no syntax highlighting, so rather limited) and even Vim!

Hi universalis,
I have noticed the same thing with Bluefish, It tends to lock up and close down quite a lot.

The thing I like about Quanta plus is, it feels as if you are coding by hand, but you still have the sortcuts to insert tags, images etc. When I was a 100% windows user I used various forms of wysiwyg software. I think it made me lazy. Now looking forward to learning more about html.

Best thing about using linux for development is you can save your project in your apache www folder and simply preview your work in localhost. Very helpfull for working with php.

I think quanta was more aimed at web page development in html but works well with php.

Of course, you can do the same thing with the Windows version of Apache -

Quanta related problem

I am pulling hairs by the truck load!

here is my problem:
for an unknown reason my mouse pointer is now as large as a character and if I click in the middle of any code line
to add a space to perform any change it will del the letter it is pointing on
if I add more to a segment it does add by deleting each following letter or sign insetead of inserting

what's wrong
